Pros: On board nvidia, decent speed. Weight is a good combination of size/power to heft. Not too heavy and not small at all. Good battery life for power and size. On full charge one year later using High Performance this little guy lasters over 3 hours.
Cons: As petty as it sounds I wish the home and end keys weren't function keys to PgUp and PgDn. I use those keys a lot when programming.
Other Thoughts: Would buy againREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Bang for buck: With the 645M dedicated 2GB graphics card this laptop plays anything I want it too.
The weight is great considering how large the screen is and that it comes with a number pad.
Cons: Screen is too glarey (though I knew about this at purchase).
Comes installed with Windows 8 and no option for 7. Having to take hours to set up 7 then download all the drivers was annoying enough that I can't rate this 5. But to MSI's credit they have all the drivers for 7-64bit on their site easy to find.
Other Thoughts: All in all, I am very satisfied with this machine. It's fast enough they my code compiles in a blink (where my old budget model could take a few seconds), and light enough for lugging around campus. Plus I can play my games without having to have spent twice as much.READ FULL REVIEW
